DHARAMSHALA, June 12: The only government run institute of the exile Tibetan community that was founded as the Tibetan Drama Party and now known as TIPA (Tibetan Institute of Performing Arts) today held its annual cultural performance contest between its two houses, Ngonpa and Gyallu.

Presiding over as the Chief Guest was the Tibetan Prime Minister Lobsang Sangay. Also present were Kagyu Dhondup, the Chief Justice Commissioner, Penpa Tsering, the Speaker of the Tibetan parliament.

A one-minute silence was observed in memory of Tibetan martyrs before the start of the contest that has been the attraction of the Tibetan Institute of Performing Arts for many years.

The contest was dedicated to His Holiness the Dalai Lama turning 80 this year and for the first time ever, the competition was tied. Both the houses – Ngonpa and Gyallu – both scored a total of 255 to tie the score.

The director of the institute, Wangdue Tsering, welcomed the exclusive guests to this year’s Yarkyi in his address and expressed his gratitude to the Kashag for sanctioning projects geared towards promotion and preservation of the Tibetan performing culture including renovation works of the current auditorium.

Wangdue briefed the audience about the various activities of the institute, including the successful Shotn opera festival in March this year. He noted the importance of the institute in not just preserving the Tibetan performing art but also promotion of it around the world with former members of the institute taking initiatives for various Tibetan communities around the world.

The Tibetan PM said he was glad that the results of the contest was tied. “It is very difficult for me to comfort the loser. Just two days ago I was consoling the players who were all tears after losing the GCM football final game. But today I am relieved that I don’t have to console anyone. So in a way the tie in good.”

PM Sangay said the performing culture is very important, as it is the face of the Tibetan people to the world.

Located in the exile headquarters of Dharamshala, TIPA is the only official organisation in the exile community catering to the preservation and promotion of Tibetan performing arts. The institute's artistes travel widely around the globe showcasing Tibet's unique culture and traditional arts.
